Skirting the issue

A women's Dutch football team have caused something of a stir with their new kit which some have claimed more closely resembles a skirt, rather than shorts.

It's an interesting question though. Why shouldn't female football players be able to wear a skirt if they wish? If the garment is suitable for wear and doesn't hinder their movement then it's surely as acceptable as shorts? The club chairman of the teams insists this shift from shorts to skirts is no publicity gimmick and that his players genuinely prefer the skirts.

What do you think?

How about a halfway house of a kilt?
